Finally finished my RS carbon trim upgrade
Nipped to local dealers to collect two silver blanking plugs I ordered on monday, swapped out the guts of my blue led rear demister and refitted the carbon switch panel in place of the boring asphalt grey one.
Much happier with the look now.

Someone bashed my passenger mirror a few months ago, I got back to the car and the bits were on the floor and the mirror dangling on the heater wires, went back together but the black parts damaged and I need to replace it at some point.

 

Today I knocked it again against another wing mirror in traffic and the mirror glass fell out and dangled *again*.  It really needs replacing..

 

Be checking Scrappies and Ebay over the weekend I suspect..

I thought that might have been why your temp gauge was all over the place!

Ouch - hope not   

 

Well i used my new multi-meter (all mod-cons - backlit data hold etc) to test my glow plugs individually, they were fine - so the smoke im getting at startup must be something else

Snow Foamed and washed her yesterday only for it to rain last night but got some good shots of the beading from the collonite wax applied 6 weeks ago.

Fitted a leather/chrome gear knob from a 2.5 Focus Sport.

Bit of a faff getting the gaiters to fit again as the 2.0 has an elastic collar on it that sits into a moulded rim on the knob and the 2.5 just has a rough leather end which clips between the knob and a clip-on collar.

Judicious use of a sharp blade to unpick the stitching around the elastic end and the application of a small cable tie to tighten it all back up again and job done.
